UPDATED: MAY 21, 2007 Wow, the aroma is great in this one. Got a good whiff before I was done filling my glass. Tons of floralie(?) hops. Taste is the same, all hops. Very smooth finish, not as harsh as some IIPA’s. Extremely drinkable.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2007
22 oz bottle, via jarspag. Pours a clear gold colored body under a one finger foamy beige head that left lots of lacing. Big grapefruity citrusy nose with some light tangerine and peach. Minimal malt and just a hint of alcohol. Big brash citrusy hops grab you first, then recedes to a bitter, slightly candy-like malt finish with a noticabl alcohol kick and lots of bitterness. Mouthfeel is mediun bodied with a thinner texture than I expected. I think the alcohol has alot to do with that, as it’s pretty well attenuated. Moderate fizzy carbonation is a bit much for me. Overall, this was OK, a little heavy on the bitterness, but the super carbonation level was also a detractor.

22oz bottle, thanks to sdbruboy for this. pours hazy orange-golden with fluffy white head. nose has real nice juicy tropical fruits of mango and pinnapple along with orange and grapefruit, some phenols too. flavors are pretty sweet and hoppy but isn’t that bitter, juicy fruit hop notes with grapefruit and oranges rests on a strong sweet caramel malt back bone. balanced well. easy and fun to drink. alcohol is well hidden. i prefer a iipa to be a bit more bitter and crisp rather than boozy sweet. this is tasty but i think a real fresh bottle or on tap would be killer.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Good hoppy floral aroma of pine and citrus, sticky palate, very sweet candy taste with a long lingering malty sweetness in the finish - a really well balanced IPA.

sloth (2454) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Medium sized offwhite head, very good retention with a seriously coating lace. Clear copper colored brew, a real looker. Juicey nose of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, nicely tropical with mild caramel malts in the background. Body is medium and a half, lightly resiny, mouth watering and juicey. An amazing blend of spicey, fruity tropical hop flavors with notes of peach and mint. Caramel malt is medium sweet and balances out the amazing hopping levels very well. Lace just wont quit. Hop flavors showing more flowery notes as we go along, hoppy citrusy, piney notes appearing also. Finish is medium sweet with all the above and a lovely bite. Props to SDbruboy for the bomber! Thanks Cliff!!

TheEpeeist (3295) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2007
22 oz bottle. Cloudy creamy orange with a cratered, pale yellow head. Fresh orange juice with light toffee. Delightful aroma. Smooth grapefruit candy, a touch of orange with some quinine toward the end. Soft, medium body with building carb feel. Nice double that doesn’t overpower.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Dry hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. Sweet malty bitter flavor with lots of hops and citrus notes. Sweet malty finish with lots of hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste, with some citrus hints.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bomber bottle: Pours a copper color with a large bubble filled one finger head that quickly disappeared. Good aroma of piney, sweet citrus. Some lacing is present as the glass goes down. More resinous than I would like. Pretty solid balance of malt and hops with a lingering finish. A solid beer that grows on you with each sip.
